I didn't ever appreciate the phrase "40 is the new 30" until I turned 40 years old this month! Growing up I truly thought 30 was super old and by the time you turned 40 you were ancient. I completely grateful to be 100% wrong!
40 actually feels really good. In a way that I actually truly like who I am for the first time in my life. Not that I was a complete hater of myself before, but it's sure nice to finally be comfortable with being me. I (mostly) know what I want out of life and I knew I wanted a beautiful party for this milestone birthday.
For a few years now I've been planning and pinning ideas of what I wanted and my husband made it all come true for me! I didn't want it to be huge, but I definitely wanted it to be spectacular. He planned the majority of it with the ideas I gave him and it turned out perfect!
